The name of the terminology list file to be used in the TranslateText request. You can use 1 terminology list at most in a TranslateText request. Terminology lists can contain a maximum of 256 terms.

--source-language-code (string)

The language code for the language of the source text. The language must be a language supported by Amazon Translate. For a list of language codes, see what-is-languages .

To have Amazon Translate determine the source language of your text, you can specify auto in the SourceLanguageCode field. If you specify auto , Amazon Translate will call Amazon Comprehend to determine the source language.

--target-language-code (string)

The language code requested for the language of the target text. The language must be a language supported by Amazon Translate.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
